Martin Brothers Wine & Spirits has been providing fine libations on the Upper West Side for nearly 30 years. While their sterling availability of wine, bourbon, scotch, champagne, and other beverages is part of their success, it’s not the whole story. What really sets Martin Brothers Wine & Spirits apart from every other wine and spirits retailer is their customer service, educated staff, and passion for the product.
Purchasing fine wine or liquor can feel like a gamble if you aren’t an experienced connoisseur or a trained sommelier. Many people readily admit that their final selection is often made based on the attractiveness of the label and the price. At Martin Brothers Wine & Spirits you don’t have to be an expert to find something you like!
Elizabeth Martin, the store’s owner, is a graduate of the International Wine Center and a member of the Sommelier Society of America. She has worked tirelessly to ensure that every staff member is highly trained, knowledgeable, and able to make helpful suggestions based on each customer’s tastes and price range.
Educating the customer is part of the Martin Brothers Wine & Spirits' experience. If you’re not well-versed in specific wine or spirits terminology, do not fear! Using basic taste descriptions, the friendly and helpful staff can suggest something that suits your palate.
The best part is that this process helps you build a working knowledge of what you like, so in the future you’ll be able to articulate your tastes better and make selections on your own. Keeping track of what you purchase, and rating it yourself based on your own personal tastes is a great way to learn more about fine wine and spirits.
